Prepare yourself for leading employers

Macquarie video interview

If your psychometric test results suggest that you have the required skills and aptitudes, you will be invited to the next stage of the application process: a video interview.

This involves answering pre-recorded questions under timed conditions, to demonstrate your passion and interest in both Macquarie and the programme you have chosen.

The questions in the video interview are tailored to the business group you have applied for, and successful candidates will need to demonstrate that they are commercially minded.

Macquarie Superday

The final stage of the Macquarie application process is the Superday. Successful applicants will be invited to join the team at the Macquarie offices to complete some further assessments and have more interviews.

During the Superday you can expect to complete a presentation about a case study or article, and you may have to complete a problem-solving activity with a team.

There will likely be further interviews with colleagues and mentors, as well as competency-based questions to assess you further. During these interviews, it is important to show that you have done your research about Macquarie, and can demonstrate why you think you would be successful.

Feedback on your performance at the Superday will be provided (even if you are not successful).

    Well written passages that were suitable in length

    The passages were short, and the questions were easy to understand and to identify the key words in the passage

  • Australia

    September 23, 2022

    Time Management Required

    Overall the test was very time sensitive but fair. Some questions given the length or required calculations were skipped due to time constraints.

  • India

    August 13, 2022

    Due respect to timing

    Since the questions are to be answered in a limited time, it is important that you are quick and focused.

  • Australia

    May 25, 2022

    Understand the Tables

    Good final questions. Tables at start kind of hard to follow in head when scrolling back up and down for the question.

  • Australia

    May 23, 2022

    How to use a calculator quickly

    The questions in the middle didn't allow equal time for each question. Usually these tests are 1m per question but it was clear that the middle questions needed more minutes per question to complete, while others didn't.

    Quick analysis of what is being asked

    For the number of questions, i think the timing is a little thin. But in any case, some were relatively easy to comprehend.

  • United Kingdom

    January 05, 2022


    Overall it's clear and good. It could be better if the questions and tables are on the same page, so you don't need to click down.

  • Australia

    December 01, 2021

    Lots of table interpretation...

    The tables need to be smaller so that the question can also be seen. It was hard to scroll up and down.

  • Italy
